Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


In 1516, Don Juan Díaz de Solís discovered the Río de La Plata. In 1534, Don Pedro de Mendoza was sent by the King of Spain to take charge of the ‘Gobernación y Capitania de las tierras del Río de La. Plata.’ In February 1536, he founded the city of the ‘Puerto de Santa Maria del Buen Aire,’ and in 1810 the population rose against Imperial Spanish rule. In 1816 Argentina proclaimed its independence. Civil wars and anarchy followed until, in 1853, a stable government was established with a constitution.
